Welcome to The Julia Matheson Blog:
leaving a legacy
Every single one of us leaves a legacy. Your very existence has an impact on the world - whether you intend it or not. So, how do YOU want to be remembered? I was reminded of the notion of legacy powerfully last night, as my family attended the official opening of a building named in my late Aunty Sandra's honour. She had served most passionately for four decades at her workplace... Read More »
play to your strengths
You will excel only by maximising your strengths, never by fixing your weaknesses. You don't have to stick your head in the sand about what may need improving, but the point is not to FOCUS on it. Weakness fixing is damage control not development. Damage control can prevent failure, but it will never elevate you to excellence. Strengths work is often a foreign concept for a lot... Read More »
the expectation blame-game
Birthdays have a similar effect on me as New Years Eve. For me, they are these huge "time" reminders telling me that I'm another year older. My mind automatically goes into stocktake mode and wants to review and assess where I've been, where I am now and where I want to go. I am just coming off the back of my 34th Birthday (I actually forgot how old I was turning this year!), and it's... Read More »
can gratitude and desire co-exist?
Is it possible to have gratitude for what you have right now, while still wanting more? This was the topic of conversation in my business mastermind group this morning, and it sparked a hell of an interesting conversation! Does practicing gratitude for what you have, automatically lessen your desire for change, for goal attainment, for achievement in your life? In my eyes it doesn't, and... Read More »
climbing the corporate ladder?
Many of my clients come to me for the exact same reason - increasing their fulfilment at work. They want to find work that excites them, that gives them meaning, that feels GOOD - yet they aren't quite sure on what that looks like exactly. What are they passionate about? What are their biggest strengths? What unique skills, attributes and talents do they hold? What kind of lifestyle do... Read More »
crafting a life you want to come home to
I had such a great realisation last week. You see, most times when I'm away exploring the world, I never want to come back home. I want to keep going to the next place, the next sight, the next experience. The allure of endless travel always had such a strong pull, one that up until now I always felt sad to leave behind. But not this time. I was actually really excited to come home! This... Read More »
the path to passion is winding
The road to discovering your passion is never a straight one. There are pot holes, winding bends, sharp corners, delays and even u-turns. Winding up living on purpose, expressing your passions and loving the sh*t out of what you do is no accident. It is rooted in self discovery and personal development. If you're like most people, it takes dedication, work and sometimes what might feel... Read More »
be the lotus
I'll be real, I've been in a period of intense flatness these past few weeks. Feeling low in mood, un-motivated and quite down. I just haven't felt like myself. It's interesting that my first reaction to this was to push these feelings away, to move through them as quickly as possible so that I could get back to my "good ol self" (yeah, it doesn't work). I've been trying so hard to... Read More »
let that sh*t go
Autumn is a period of huge release and transformation. Not just externally out in mother nature, but also deep within us. It triggers us, challenges us, and sometime's causes a sh*t storm. . . who else is feeling that right now? I for one have been on an emotional rollercoaster, questioning so many things in my life and my work. It's been a period of deep reflection, asking myself what fits... Read More »
you are not required to hustle
Taking a sick day is pretty unheard of when you run your own business. But when your body is screaming at you to stop, sometimes that's all you can do. Yesterday I awoke at 2am to nausea and then got to know my bathroom sink very intimately, then my stomach continued to cramp and bloat for the next 24 hours causing me stabbing pain. I'm still not right, but I'm feeling a hell-of-a-lot... Read More »

“After Julia’s coaching, I am always full of promise and inspiration, I feel I shine a little brighter. She doesn’t push me; instead she gives me the desire to push myself. She doesn’t make me do things, instead she fuels MY want to do what I know I can, what I know is inside me. Julia has helped me be bold, be brave, and most of all be beautifully me.”

Ella Trotter

“When considering a coach for our Lululemon ambassador Retreat, Julia was all we thought of.  Julia’s session was absolutely integral to the transformational event we created. She brought the group together, and the sharing that Julia facilitated carried through the entire Retreat. Julia’s power is in her ability to enable impactful dialogue between the conscious self and the heart, and it was such a privilege to have her develop and elevate this amazing group of people towards being even more powerful, goal-focused rockstars.”
